Fenella Fielding


Born - 27 November 1927, Stepney, London, England
Died - 11 September 2018

Very dark-haired, velvet-voiced English comedienne and actress with liquid lips that could curve into a lascivious smile. Such character names as Penny Panting and Lady Eager epitomised her cinema output: small wonder that she preferred the theatre. Born Fenella Feldman, she proved a witty member of stage revues from 1952, but films could only offer her small parts and cameos until she obtained better roles from the mid 1960s. After Follow a Star and Sapphire (both 1959), she was seen in Doctor in Love (1960), Carry On Regardless (1961), In the Doghouse (1962), The Old Dark House (1963), Carry On Screaming (1966), Drop Dead, Darling (1966), Lock Up Your Daughters! (1969), The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood (1983), Guest House Paradiso (1999), Beginner's Luck (2001), Wishbaby (2007) and Over the Edge (2011), her last. She died following two strokes.
